Colloquium - Black

ECCR 265

Highly-Optimized Provably-Secure Cryptography
Department of Computer Science, University of Nevada, Reno

Cryptography has traditionally been the concern of military and governmental groups. However, with businesses and individuals commonly conducting sensitive transactions over a fundamentally insecure Internet, cryptography is now pervasively employed to protect the privacy and integrity of these communications. How can we be sure the algorithms employed are sound, and how do we make them fast enough that people will tolerate their use? This talk attempts to answer these questions by sketching an overview of the area and then focusing on the author's recent work related to fast provably-secure encryption and authentication schemes.

Hosted by Alexander Wolf.
Refreshments will be served immediately following the talk in ECOT 831.

The Department holds colloquia throughout the Fall and Spring semesters. These colloquia, open to the public, are typically held on Thursday afternoons, but sometimes occur at other times as well.
